Church in the Name of Jesus, Bonn

Church in the Name of Jesus, Bonn

The Church is one of the most interesting north German Jesuit churches, built in Romanesque style featuring Gothic elements juxtaposed with almost Baroque forms. Designed by Jakob de Candrea, the church was built using the so-called "Jesuit Gothic" style, combining Baroque elements with other styles. The two towers surrounding the building have double recessed Romanesque windows with Gothic windows on the central arch. However, the columns are ornamented with Baroque decorations. Each tower is crowned with a bulbous dome. The interior of the church features a huge, impressive hall. The crypts below the church serve as the resting place of 65 Jesuit Fathers.
